January 4 to 8, 2010
Katie grilled Brooke about the "Dare" line, and Brooke finally confessed that it was designed as a failure. Katie and Bill met with Eric, Ridge, Brooke, Steffy, and Donna, and Bill laid into them for trying to embarrass Katie and sabotage the company. The defiant Forresters had hoped that a failed line would prompt the Spencer Publications' board to force Bill to sell the company. Bill reminded the Forresters that he controlled a lot of media and the Spencer Publications board. He told them that he saved their butts by not allowing them to embarrass themselves and Katie with the "Dare" line. He called the Logans "jealous tramps." Bill and Katie later fought over Katie's loyalty to her family. Katie went to Brooke's place. Steffy visited Bill, who was drinking liquor straight from the bottle. Bill told her to leave, but she prattled on about how wrong Katie was to leave him after a fight. She seductively told him that she wouldn't have left him. The storm knocked out the power at Bill's, and Bill and Steffy shared a passionate kiss before Steffy ran out the door. Lieutenant Baker promised to investigate Sandy's case, even though DNA testing revealed that her attacker had no record and was not in any database. Sandy and Nick grew closer as she thanked him for helping her.
January 11 to 15, 2010
Katie and Bill made up after she had walked out on him, but he didn't tell her about Steffy's visit, and things were still tense between them. Steffy told Thomas about her latest kissing bout with Bill, and he suggested that she use Bill to return Forrester Creations to the Forrester family's control. A grown-up Hope joined the staff at Forrester as a high-school intern, and Steffy whined to Ridge that it was unfair that Steffy had to share Ridge with Hope at work. Taylor agreed, which resulted in an all-out argument, with Brooke and Hope battling Steffy and Taylor. Ridge was in the middle. After the "Dare" campaign was shelved, Steffy crafted an "Afterparty" ad campaign and introduced Graham Darros, the internationally famous photographer, for the photography job. However, she had some competition. Katie helped Hope introduce a "Hope of the Future" campaign, with Hope as its spokesperson/model -- a job that Steffy had previously turned down. Ridge fumed when he heard that the Logans had chosen Hope's campaign over Steffy's. Ridge told Brooke, "It's over," while Taylor watched. Sandy told Whip that her rape had occurred after a party they attended together. Whip asked who had been at the party after he left, and Sandy remembered Graham Darros, a photographer. Nick continued to keep Sandy's rape a secret from Bridget.
January 18 to 22, 2010
Katie and Steffy presented their ad campaigns to Bill, and Bill decided on "Hope for the Future." Steffy was angry. She privately met with Bill and promised profits if he gave her control of the company and ousted the Logans. Bill admitted to Justin that he couldn't get his kiss with Steffy off his mind. Katie told Donna that she wanted Steffy out of the company because she was interfering in Katie's marriage. Ridge was furious that the Logans chose Hope for the ad campaign, and discarded Steffy's ideas. Stephanie warned Brooke that choosing her family and Hope's campaign over Ridge would be detrimental to her marriage. Stephanie reminded Brooke that when she had chosen Rick over Ridge, it was disastrous. Brooke and Ridge argued and made up, but Brooke invited her sisters to dinner, and Ridge refused to attend. Instead, he went to Taylor's where he told Taylor that he had made a mistake in returning to Brooke, and they shared a kiss. Photographer Graham Darros shot photos of Hope and reviewed them with Steffy and Hope at Insomnia. Steffy and Hope met Oliver Jones, a DJ and Sandy's brother at Insomnia. He told them how beautiful they were, and asked them to invite all their friends to Insomnia.
January 25 to 29, 2010
Taylor fantasized about Ridge, but later forgot about him while she was in Whip's arms. Hope and Steffy argued about Hope calling Ridge her father, but Steffy relented that Ridge was Hope's dad in every way but DNA. Nick was suspicious that Graham might have raped Sandy. Nick visited Graham and managed to get Graham's DNA on a piece of gum. He and Sandy took it to the police. Ridge continued to whine about Bill and Katie running Forrester. Stephanie, Taylor, Ridge, and Brooke worried that if Hope became famous, the media would crucify her because Hope was Deacon's daughter. Deacon was married to Bridget at the time Hope was conceived. Graham took photos of Hope at his loft and offered her wine so she could relax. Hope proudly took the photos to Ridge and Brooke, but Hope overheard Brooke talking about how ashamed she was when she was pregnant with Hope, who crumbled in tears. Hope confronted Ridge and Brooke and then called Graham and asked to crash at his apartment. Graham set up a party after he received Hope's call. Hope was driving to Graham's but swerved and screamed while she was arguing with Ridge and Brooke on the phone.

Graham drugged Hope during his party, and she tried to leave, but he insisted that she was a party girl and needed to stay at his place. He laid her on his bed and started to remove her clothes, but Nick and Sandy interrupted him after they discovered that Graham was the man who had raped Sandy five years earlier. Graham was arrested, but he had knocked Sandy down, and she experienced cramping. At the hospital, Bridget learned about Sandy's true identity as Agnes. Bridget freaked out on Agnes and Nick. Later, Brooke overheard Agnes tell Whip that Agnes was in love with Nick. Brooke warned Agnes to back away from Nick. Hope finally awakened at the hospital, and Ridge and Brooke tried to convince her that they never meant to hurt her when she overheard that Deacon was her father and that she was conceived when Brooke slept with Deacon, who was still married to Bridget. Hope was cold to her parents, but warmed up to Oliver when he visited. Steffy apologized to Hope for allowing Graham to take her photos at his apartment, but Hope said that she didn't blame Steffy.
February 8 to 12, 2010
Ridge freaked out after seeing "Forrester Creations, a division of Spencer Publications" a few too many times. Steffy vowed to get the company back into Forrester hands. Steffy visited Bill, and she teased that she would make him forget out all about Katie if he spent a few hours with her. Donna tattled that she saw Bill and Steffy together, and Katie ordered Bill to meet her at home where she flipped out on him for letting Steffy come on to him. Bill and Katie argued, and Katie walked out again. Steffy was eavesdropping outside the house, and quickly moved indoors to seduce Bill. Steffy and Bill were in the bedroom when Katie returned home. Sandy told Nick that she loved him, but she said that she would never interfere in his marriage to Bridget. When Bridget found out Sandy was in love with her husband, she reminded the surrogate that she was nothing more than an incubator for Nick and Bridget's baby.

Steffy succeeded in blackmailing Bill to return the company to the Forresters in exchange for Katie's ring. Steffy duped Bill into signing a contract that she called the Ridge Eric Sustainable Trust, but she secretly had him sign a contract that included Ridge, Eric, Stephanie, and Taylor as the owners and management team. Steffy refused to allow Bill time to review the contract with a lawyer. Stephanie and Taylor gloated that they were among the new owners, and Brooke and Donna were shocked. Katie wondered why Bill had made a decision to sell without consulting her. Bridget continued to berate Agnes and worried that Agnes wasn't taking care of herself. Taylor told Ridge about her romance with Whip.

Taylor spent the night with Whip and she shared that she wasn't sure that she should liquidate all her assets and invest in a new career. After some soul-searching and an offer from Brooke to buy her out, Taylor decided that she wanted to go into debt and become a partner in ownership of Forrester Creations. That didn't sit well with Brooke, who wouldn't take no for an answer on her buyout offer. Taylor and Brooke argued and wound up in a physical battle in the fountain outside the Forrester building. In some tender scenes, Eric convinced Stephanie to return to Forrester as a partner, and he told her that he still loved her. Stephanie and Pam departed Jackie M after telling the Jackie M gang that they had been like family, but Stephanie felt she had to return to the company she had built with Eric.

Bridget told Owen that she couldn't stay married to Nick anymore. Owen sympathetically listened to Bridget, who appeared to be in the middle of an emotional breakdown. Owen took Bridget to his friend's beach house, and they comforted each other in their common failed wishes to have a baby. Bridget lit dozens of candles and asked Owen to pray with her. Comfort got of control, and Owen and Bridget had sex and quickly regretted that they got carried away. Bridget planned to tell Nick what she had done, but she decided to keep quiet. Owen felt guilty when he returned home to Jackie. Oliver, who was staying at the beach house, left when he saw all the candles lit. He was testing out his new pocket projector gadget when he shot video of the house. Later, he tried to view the video while he was having coffee with Hope. After Hope left, Oliver got his new gadget to work, and he realized that he had recorded Bridget and Owen making love in the beach house.
March 8 to 12, 2010
Taylor, Stephanie, Eric, and Ridge met about the company's new direction with Brooke chiming in her own opinion. The crew agreed that the "Hope for the Future" campaign would work for the youth line, but not as the entire image campaign for Forrester. Stephanie suggested that the company dump the "Brooke's Bedroom" line, but Brooke reminded everyone that it made money. Bridget returned to Nick, and they went on a romantic getaway to Mexico. Bridget called Owen and shared that she would not tell Nick about their tryst. Oliver realized that he had videotaped Owen and Bridget making love.

Aggie returned to Jackie M to confront Nick and Bridget about Bridget's tryst with Owen. Steffy plotted to use the video of Bridget and Owen to get Brooke out of Forrester.

Stephanie helped plan Taylor's wedding. At the same time, she frequently quizzed Taylor about her feelings for Ridge. On her wedding day, Taylor was remembering past romantic moments with Ridge.

Bridget discovered that she had missed taking a few of her birth control pills, and when she visited her doctor, she also learned that her consumption of St. John's Wort could render her birth control pills ineffective. Bridget panicked when her period was late. She used a home pregnancy test, and Owen waited with her for the results. They both worried that he could be the father. When Bridget got the results, she looked absolutely mortified, but didn't say anything, which led Owen to beg for the news. Whip started a new campaign with Owen as a cabana boy to Jackie's cougar. During the photo shoot, Owen looked unhappy to be a boy-toy yet again. Stephanie moved into Eric's guesthouse and became pretty chummy with Eric. Brooke warned Stephanie not to interfere in Donna's marriage, and Stephanie found the warnings laughable. Donna worried about her marriage, and with good reason. Stephanie, Ridge, Rick, Thorne, Pam, and Steffy crafted a moving video tribute to Eric as a surprise. Brooke and Donna were in the audience, but knew nothing about the tribute that included many photos and videos of Eric and Stephanie. The narration was Stephanie's voice.

In an emotional plea, Eric told Donna that he would wait for her. Bill encouraged Donna to divorce Eric and ask for half of everything Eric owned - especially his shares in Forrester. Bill prepared a document to that effect that Donna left at Eric's house. Eric called Bill, and told him his mission to regain control of Forrester through Donna wouldn't work, and Eric knew that Donna would never give in to Bill.

Hope's introduction was a smashing success. When accusations came around to Steffy and Pam, Steffy whined that it was all because Hope had stolen her dad and taken the spotlight that her dead twin sister, Phoebe, would have had. Ridge fired Steffy from Hope's campaign, and noted that she needed help. Taylor seemed to be blind to the fact that Steffy had a variety of issues.

Jackie and Bridget continually yakked about keeping the paternity of Bridget's baby a secret, but Bridget cracked and told Owen that he was her baby's father.
